BlitzWolf 4 usb and QC BW-S7

DSC_9427

Official specifications: I got it from banggood


DSC_9360 DSC_9361

It was in a brown cardboard box without any information except the type number.

DSC_9424

In the box was the charger, a mains cable and a instruction sheet.

Measurements

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20%231%20230V%20load%20sweep

There is no individual port protection on the usb outputs.

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20%234%20230V%20load%20sweep

It is the same on this output

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20230V%20load%20sweep

When all four is used the maximum current draw is about 4.7A this matches fine with a 4.4A rating.

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20120V%20load%20sweep

It is the same at 120VAC

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20QC5V%20230V%20load%20sweep

On 5V the QC output can deliver about 3.3A

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20QC9V%20230V%20load%20sweep

At 9V the output current is down to 2.3A, but the overload protection do first kick in at 3.3A

BlitzWolf%20BW-S7%20QC12V%20230V%20load%20sweep

And 1.8A at 12V

Running the charger with 4.4A on usb and 12V 1.5A on QC it could handle 60 minutes.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp5539

M1: 69.3C, M2: 63.2C, M3: 54.4C, HS1: 72.9C

HS1 is the usb transformer, M1 is the mains switcher transformer and M2 is the heatsink for the rectifier transistor.

Temp5540

M1: 48.9C, HS1: 64.1C
HS1 is the QC transformer, here it is very close to the box and will heat it, next to HS1 is the QC rectifier transistor.

Temp5541

M1: 77.0C, HS1: 85.8C
HS1 is the large QC switcher, it is hot and only some of the heat reach the plastic. M1 is the gray heat transfer pad, it is moving some heat from the circuit board.

Temp5542

HS1: 56.9C
HS1 is the rectifier transistor for USB.

Temp5543

HS1: 70.0C

10ohm

At 0.5A the noise is 6mV rms and 63mVpp.

5ohm

At 1A the noise is 6mV rms and 70mVpp.

2ohm

At 2.5A the noise is 6mV rms and 78mVpp.

10ohmQC5V

At 0.5A the noise is 17mV rms and 503mVpp.

2ohmQC5V

At 2.5A the noise is 53mV rms and 631mVpp.

10ohmQC9V

At 0.9A the noise is 42mV rms and 573mVpp.

10ohmQC12V

At 1.2A the noise is 26mV rms and 657mVpp.



Tear down

DSC_0807

Some pressure in my vice and I could break the bottom off. The gray stuff can transfer heat, but there is not anything making heat where it is placed. If it had covered the big black chip it would have made sense.

DSC_0808

At the input is a fuse and two common mode coils, both placed under the heatsink and one hidden in yellow tape. The rectifier is also placed under the heatsink. On the heatsink is the mains switcher transistor for USB. There are two blue safety capacitors, one for each transformer.
At the low volt side is two rectifier transistors, for USB a large one on a heatsink for QC a SMD part. Just behind the QC USB connector is the QC controller chip.

DSC_0817

A look under the heatsink.

DSC_0811 DSC_0813

DSC_0812

DSC_0809

On this side is the mains switcher controller for USB (U9) with opto feedback (U5). The low volt side for USB output contains a synchronous rectifier controller (U8), a reference (U10: 431). It also looks like there is some current detection with a very small resistor (R7C: 10mOhm), another reference (U3: 431) and probably an OpAmp (U4). The four usb output has two dual auto coding IC's (U6 & U7).
The QC circuit is basically one IC (U1: INN2215K) that controls everything, except the QC part.

DSC_0814

DSC_0815 DSC_0816

Some of the distances are slightly on the low side, the opto coupler has only 5mm pin spacing.


Testing with 2830 volt and 4242 volt between mains and low volt side, did not show any safety problems.



Conclusion

This is a fairly standard USB and QC charger, the output power on the 4 usb connectors is a bit low for 4 connectors, there is only power for two high power devices (With the QC port it means 3 high power devices). The ports are auto coding and the four ports a low in noise
